The Apostle by J. A. Kerley
  

Lovereading view...

With a chill factor set at zero, this has everything you need in a crime novel; resolute detectives, a warped murderer and enough twists and turns to keep the readers mind well and truly wrapped up. You don’t need to have read any other books in the ‘Carson Ryder’ series to enjoy this, however the other novels will no doubt call out to you when you finish. The author manages to set your mind on a number of tangled and twisted paths, can you keep up, can you unravel the plot? Give yourself a massive pat on the back if you work it all out before the detectives, as there are plenty of sneaky surprises lurking just out of sight to trip you up. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Apostle by J. A. Kerley

From the bestselling author of Her Last Scream, a chilling tale of ritual murder and corruption, featuring Detective Carson Ryder. The Reverend Honus Schrum, a nationally renowned minister and owner of a broadcasting empire, tells the media he has come home to Key West to die. Meanwhile, Detective Carson Ryder is investigating the ritualistic murders of young women with chequered pasts, discovering the killings have religious overtones. Simultaneously, a newly retired Harry Nautilus takes a job as a driver/bodyguard for Richard Owsley, an ambitious pastor in Mobile. They come to Florida, where Owsley meets with Schrum and is enlisted to complete a special and mysterious 'project' Schrum has promised a billionaire benefactor. As Carson digs deeper into the murders, Harry, interest piqued by all the hush-hush goings-on of his new employer, begins to covertly investigate the strange project. Their independent investigations begin to converge, and Carson and Harry uncover a horrifying connection between the cases...
